The fifth graders did an activity last week where they took 'school supply beat cards', put them in different orders and read them with the correct rhythm. This week they will learn how to make their own in small groups, with a category of their choosing. This will help the students write and read rhythms in different contexts.
The fifth graders are also starting to sing rounds/canons this week. East Gloucester students will be learning The Canoe Song (Plum Cove learned this last year), and Plum Cove students will be reviewing the songs they learned last year, which include: The Canoe Song, Ah Poor Bird, The Ghost of John, Hey Ho, and Bumble Bee.
